Bike to Groceries and Swing!
September 29, 2018 at 11:00 am - 1:00 pm
We’ll be swinging through New Seasons’ Bike to Groceries event which promotes biking to pick up groceries instead of driving. They will have biking organizations and local food vendors joining in the fun, in the heart of Portland’s original jazz district.

Walk up and down Williams Avenue and you’ll see the signs on the posts detailing what life was like on The Stem – the street so named for the businesses that sprouted from it of almost every conceivable type!
